UC Irvine Extension and Brandman University have signed an articulation agreement to provide career professionals with more opportunities to reach their educational goals. Under the terms of the agreement, students who complete UC Irvine’s certificate program in project management are eligible to transfer twelve graduate elective credits to Brandman’s Masters in Business Administration (MBA) or the Masters in Organizational Leadership (MAOL).

Through the partnership, professionals seeking higher education can save money on tuition and accelerate their education to complete their degree in one year. The certificate program at UC Irvine equips students with skills such as team leadership and project planning.

“This partnership with UC Irvine Extension has already opened some doors of opportunity for our students and we are really excited about it,” said Glenn Worthington, dean of Brandman University School of Business and Professional Studies. “The articulation agreement will allow our MBA and MAOL students to accelerate their career goals.”

“We are pleased to collaborate with Brandman University to provide students with new options to their career path. Project management professionals will have increased opportunities to further their education and master new areas of business,” said Melanie Mitchell, UC Irvine Extension’s acting director of marketing, management and business programs.

Brandman is part of the Chapman University system, and its Orange County campus is located in Irvine.
